In the New Year, Scottish & Southern Electric will be removing the overhead lines and pylons from Rowhill Nature Reserve, now that the electric supply has been diverted.
We have worked closely with SSE, ecologists and the volunteers to minimise impact on the reserve during the project.
Works are expected to start on 8th Jan to cut vegetation for access, ready for the structures to be removed in Feb / March. The paths will largely remain open & only be restricted whilst heavy machinery is working. Please take care around the project area, on the protective track surfacing and keep your dog on a lead around the machinery.
If you have any questions about the project, please me on 01252 331353.
